Mind Games And Staged Terror To Disarm With Smiles ?

©Renee 2012

We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years.

These are the words today of Obama after a shooting at a Connecticut school that left 20 children and several adults dead. Yes Obama, we HAVE endured too many, but how odd and convenient are all these shootings with the UN putting pressure on the USA for gun control  at the same time ?

 This all smells of  mind control. How hard is it to find a person and turn them into a shooting freak for a cause ? Who is driving this sick plan ? Why the push ? This is a country of fishermen and hunters, do you want all of the fishing rods too ? No, I did not think so…..just America’s guns ? Playing murder and fear games for gun rights ?

In the past few years I have followed the Ft. Hood shootings, Amy Bishop, John Wheeler, the shoe bomber, Judge Roll and Gabby Giffords, Sikh Temple, Vietnam imigrant in New York, Batman shooter James Holmes, Fast and Furious (gun running), Benghazi cover up (gun running), Clackmas Mall shooting, and now a school called Sandy Hook and a hospital too in Alabama. St Vincents in Birmingham. This does not include the odd canibal freak stories about with their face eating. Does anyone think this is creepy to say the least ?

Now I read about a report it is said, is from the Kremlin saying that  the shooter in the school incident was involved with DARPA and a game console of killing called Dangerous Waters. It is a sub hunting simulator program.  I read that Nancy Champion Lanza was overseeing a program for DARPA. I also read that Ryan and Adam Lanza’s dad works for G.E. in tax. He is also connected to Ernst and YOUNG (Enron connection). I read that he, like James Holmes’ father was scheduled to testify in the LIBOR scandal case that is moving along in London now. I looked into LIBOR and Barclays earlier as well. Is this all connected somehow ?



Murder, blackmail and mind games for a cause ? Can it be ?

    Apax Partners LLP is a global private equity and venture capital firm, headquartered in London. The company also operates out of eight other offices in New York, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Tel-Aviv, Madrid, Stockholm, Milan and Munich. The firm, including its various predecessors, have raised approximately $35 billion (USD) dating back to 1969. Apax Partners is one of the oldest and largest private equity firms operating on an international basis, ranked the seventh largest private equity firm globally.[1]

    Apax invests exclusively in certain business sectors including: telecommunications, information technology, retail and consumer products, media, healthcare and financial and business services. As of the end of 2007, Apax had invested in approximately 340 companies in all stages of development.

    Apax raises capital for its investment funds through institutional investors including corporate and public pension funds, university and college endowments, foundations and fund of funds. One of the firm’s co-founders, Alan Patricof, was an early investor in Apple Computer and America Online (AOL).

    Alan Patricof (born 1934) is an American investor and one of the early pioneers of the venture capital and private equity industries. Patricof founded Apax Partners (based on a play on Patricof’s name: Alan Patricof Associates Cross (x) Border), which is today one of the largest private equity firms globally.

    Patricof grew up in a Jewish family[2] on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City,[3] the son of immigrants from Russia. His father was a small time stockbroker.[1] He graduated from Ohio State University in three years and earned an M.B.A. from Columbia University in 1957 while working full-time as an analyst for an investment firm.[3][4]

    [edit] CareerPatricof worked from the ground up and eventually was assigned the management of the Gottesman pulp and paper fortune.[1] Tired of the irrational volatility of the stock market,[3] he focused his efforts on the new private companies in the portfolio.[1] In 1967, he invested in New York magazine, a new publication, where he served as the founding chairman of the board. The magazine was a success and his efforts elevated his business profile.[1] In 1969, he was able to raise $2.5 million and founded one of the first venture capital firms, Patricof Company Ventures. In 1977, he founded the private equity firm Apax Partners.[3] Patricof is an active investor: he always takes a seat on the company’s board and is very vocal with his views.[3]

    By the mid-1990s Apax had become one of the larger private equity firms globally. In 2001, Patricof stepped back from day-to-day management of Apax Partners, Inc., the US arm of the firm to return to his original focus on making venture capital investments in small early-stage companies. In 2006, Patricof left Apax to form Greycroft Partners which focuses on small early-stage venture capital investments.

    As an early investor in venture capital and has been involved in the development of numerous major companies including America Online, Office Depot, Cadence Design Systems, Apple Computer and FORE Systems. He was a founder and chairman of the board of New York magazine, which later acquired the Village Voice and New West magazine.[5] Patricof also acquired style magazine Details in 1987.[6] He has also been involved with Cellular Communications, Inc., NTL, and Audible.

    Over the course of his 40-year career in private equity, Patricof has been instrumental in growing the venture capital field from a base of high net-worth individuals to its position today with broad institutional backing, as well as playing a key role in the essential legislative initiatives that have guided its evolution.

    [edit] Personal lifePatricof has been married twice:

    He was married to Bette Patricof Hollander.[7][8][9] They later divorced. They had one child:
    Mark F. Patricof (b. 1964) who is married to Martha Shelburne Jones, a daughter of Anne Shelburne Jones and Bishop Edward Witker Jones of Indianapolis. Her father was then bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis.[7][8] They have two children: Lily and Nina.
    His second marriage was to Susan Hatkoff Patricoff.[10] She is the sister of Craig Hatkoff. They have two sons:
    Jamie Patricof, movie and television producer. He is married to former model Kelly Sawyer.[11] They have two children: Riley and Sawyer.
    Jonathon Cale Patricof (b. 1973) who is married to Victoria Ann Radford of New York.[12] They have two children: John Jr. and Chloe.[13][14]
    The Patricofs live in East Hampton, New York.[1]

    [edit] Political and other affiliationsPatricof has been active in Democratic Party politics, contributing to candidates including Bill and Hillary Clinton,[15][16][17][18][19] whom he met in the Hamptons when they were there as guests of lobbyist and Democratic activist Liz Robbins.[20] Patricof serves on the Board of Trustees of Columbia University Graduate School of Business.[citation needed] As of 2011[update] he serves as an advisor to the Grassroots Business Fund[21]

    Joanna Shields (born July 12, 1962) is an American-British businesswoman, currently serving as Chief Executive Officer and Chair of Tech City Investment Organization and as the UK’s Business Ambassador for Digital Industries.[1] Prior to this she was Vice President and General Manager of Facebook in EMEA. Before Facebook she was President of People Networks at Aol, a position she assumed after the acquisition of Bebo by Time Warner’s Aol unit. At Bebo she served as CEO and prior to this position she was Managing Director for Google Europe, Russia, Middle East & Africa. Shields was ranked #1 on the Wired 100 in 2011[2] and #6 in the MediaGuardian 100 in 2012.

    Shields was born in St.Marys, Pennsylvania, the second of five children.[4] Her father is a metallurgist who started up his own company in the late 60s.[5]

    Shields earned her B.S. from Penn State University and later received an M.B.A. from George Washington University.[6]

    Joanna Shields 2012[edit] CareerIn 1984 Shields joined Deloitte, working in its national affairs office in Washington, D.C. In 1986 Shields joined National Digital as a marketing manager. In 1989 she moved to Silicon Valley where she began working as a product manager for Electronics for Imaging, rising through the ranks over eight years to become VP of Production Systems. In 1997 Shields became CEO of Veon, an interactive video technology company sold to Philips in 2001. After selling Veon, Shields was hired by RealNetworks as VP International.[7]

    In 2005 Shields was hired by Google to become its Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa and in 2007 was brought in to run social networking startup Bebo.[8] Shields remained CEO of Bebo until its acquisition by Aol in May 2008, at which point she moved to New York City to head Aol’s newly created People Networks division.

    In 2010 she was hired by Sheryl Sandberg to run Facebook in Europe, Middle East & Africa as VP & Managing Director.[9]

    In October 2012, it was announced that she was resigning from her post at Facebook to take on a new role at the Tech City Investment Organisation, responsible for boosting investment in the Tech City area of London, also known as Silicon Roundabout. [10]

    [edit] BeboIn late 2006 Shields was approached by Benchmark Capital with an offer to join the company.[11] At the time, Bebo was the second largest social network in the UK, trailing MySpace.[12] By the end of Shields’ tenure Bebo was not only the largest social network in Europe, but also had more page views in the UK than Google.[13] At Bebo, Shields was responsible for launching Open Media, a new platform for helping media owners monetize their content,[14] and Bebo Originals, a series of original online shows. [15] The first Bebo Original KateModern was nominated for two BAFTA awards,[16] and won the Broadcasting Press Guild Innovation Award for Outstanding Development in Broadcasting.[17]

    Joanna Shields son, Ben Shields, is a successful student who has showed many signs of success in his school. He is also an amazing athlete and is loved by many. He is also the creator of successful Youtube channel, AgonarGaming.

    Shields is a Trustee of Save the Children UK,[18] serves on the Prince’s Trust Internet and Media Leadership Group [19] and is a member of the UK’s Government’s Women’s Business Council[20] and the Tech City Advisory Group.

    Apax in the 1980s, 1990s and the 21st centuryThroughout the 1980s, the firm grew steadily raising capital under a series of separate funds. As the 1980s progressed, the firm introduced its first later stage venture fund in 1984, its first growth capital fund in 1987 and its first dedicated European leveraged buyout fund MMG Patricof European Buy-In Fund in 1989.[4] In response to the changing conditions, in the venture capital industry in the 1980s Apax (and other early venture capital firms including Warburg Pincus and J.H. Whitney & Company) began to transition away from venture capital toward leveraged buyouts and growth capital investments, which were in vogue in that decade.[5][6] This trend was more prevalent in Europe than the U.S. where Patricof preferred to continue focusing on venture investments.

    In 1991, Apax Partners became the official name for all of its European operations however the U.S. business still operated under the Patricof & Co. name. By the mid-1990s Apax had become one of the larger private equity firms globally.

    In 2000, Patricof & Co. adopted the Apax Partners branding and formalized its affiliation with its European business. The U.S. business would operate as Apax Partners, Inc.[2] The following year, Patricof stepped back from day-to-day management of Apax Partners, Inc., the US arm of the firm to return to his original focus on making venture capital investments in small early-stage companies. In 2006, Patricof left Apax to form Greycroft Partners which focuses on small early-stage venture capital investments.[7]

    Despite the closer relations between the U.S. and European teams, the firm still operated separate fund entities for each geography. The European side of the business began to pull away in terms of capital commitments, raising more than $5 billion for its 2004 vintage European fund but just $1 billion for its 2006 U.S. vintage fund.[4]

    [edit] Saunders Karp & MegrueIn 2005, Apax announced it would acquire middle market leveraged buyout firm Saunders Karp & Megrue to augment its buyout business in the United States Saunders Karp, formerly based in Stamford, Connecticut, was founded in 1989 by Thomas A. Saunders III and Allan W. Karp. John Megrue, who today heads Apax’s operations in the U.S., had worked as a principal at Patricof & Co. before joining Saunders Karp in 1992.[8] Saunders Karp had received capital commitments from institutional investors including AT&T Corporation, the General Electric Pension Trust, Goldman Sachs Private Equity Group, HarbourVest Partners, JP Morgan Fleming Asset Management, New York State Common Retirement Fund and Verizon, among others.

    Apax Partners Worldwide is the product of the combination of three firms:

    Patricof & Co., founded in 1969 in New York by pioneering venture capitalist Alan Patricof;
    Multinational Management Group (MMG), founded in 1972 by Sir Ronald Cohen and Maurice Tchénio;[2]
    Saunders Karp & Megrue, founded in 1988 by Thomas A. Saunders III and Allan W. Karp and joined by John Megrue in 1992.
    [edit] Patricof & Co. and MMGIn 1969, Alan Patricof founded Patricof & Co. a firm dedicated to making investments in “development capital” later known as “venture capital,” primarily in small early-stage companies. Patricof, one of the early venture capitalists, was involved in the development of numerous major companies including America Online, Office Depot, Cadence Design Systems, Apple Computer and FORE Systems.[3] In 1975, Patricof launched 53rd Street Ventures, a $10 million vehicle.

    Meanwhile, in 1972, Sir Ronald Cohen and Maurice Tchénio, along with two other partners, founded Multinational Management Group (MMG) with offices in London, Paris, and Chicago. MMG initially was established as an advisory firm, working with small emerging companies, rather than an investment firm. However, MMG initially struggled to gain traction amid the negative economic conditions, particularly in the UK in the mid-1970s.

    By 1977, two of the original four founding partners had left MMG, leaving Cohen and Tchénio in need of a partner to help rejuvenate their firm. In that year, Cohen approached Alan Patricof to join them and run the new firm’s investments in the U.S. The new firm would be known as Alan Patricof Associates (APA) and ultimately come to be known as Apax Partners (based on a play on Patricof’s name: Alan Patricof Associates Cross (x) Border). Following the merger, MMG abandoned its advising business, and the new APA shifted its focus exclusively to investing in start-up companies.

    Sir Ronald Cohen (born 1945) is an Egyptian-born British businessman and political figure, known as “the father of British venture capital”[1] and “the father of social investment

    Cohen was born in Egypt; his family are Sephardi Jews, originally from Aleppo, Syria, though his mother, Sonia Douek, is English by nationality. In 1957, following the Suez Crisis, Cohen’s family was forced to abandon all their assets and flee Egyptian President Nassar’s persecution of Jews.[3] The family (including younger brother Andre) moved to England. Though initially speaking only a few words of English, Cohen went to Orange Hill grammar school in North London, now part of Mill Hill County High School where despite describing it as “a school of very doubtful reputation”[4] he excelled.

    Cohen won a scholarship to Oxford University, where he became President of the Oxford Union, and earned a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Exeter College. He subsequently attended Harvard Business School, where he was a member of the Harvard Business School Rugby Club.

    [edit] BusinessAfter leaving Harvard Business School, Cohen worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company in the United Kingdom and Italy. In 1972, along with two former business school colleagues as partners, he founded Apax Partners, one of Britain’s first venture capital firms. The company grew slowly at first, but expanded rapidly in the 1990s, becoming Britain’s largest venture capital firm, and “one of three truly global venture capital firms”.[3] Apax provided startup capital for over 500 companies, and provided money for many others, including AOL, Virgin Radio, Waterstone’s, and PPL Therapeutics, the company that cloned Dolly the sheep. In 1996 Cohen helped establish Easdaq, a technology focused stock exchange intended to be the European counterpart to the American Nasdaq. He is the recipient of a Jubilee Award for services to Israeli business, awarded by Benjamin Netanyahu and the BVCA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He is a member of the Harvard Board of Overseers and is also a fellow of Exeter College, Oxford.

    In 2002, alongside Jon Moulton, he was the inaugural inductee into the Private Equity Hall of Fame, at the British Venture Capital Association and Real Deals’ Private Equity Awards.[5]

    [edit] Social investmentCohen has been a pioneer in the area of social investment. In 2000, he became Chairman of the Social Investment Task Force (SITF). The remit of the SITF was “to set out how entrepreneurial practices could be applied to obtain higher social and financial returns from social investment, to harness new talents and skills, to address economic regeneration and to unleash new sources of private and institutional investment”.[6] The SITF made several recommendations to Government, including that it: (1) introduce Community Investment Tax Relief (CITR); (2) match finance to help set up the first community development venture capital fund; (3) encourage banks to disclose more of their lending activities; (4) to support legislative and regulatory changes to provide greater latitude and encouragement for charitable trusts and foundations to invest in community development finance; and (5) to create the Community Development Finance Association (cdfa) to provide support for community development finance institutions (CDFIs).[7]

    In 2002, he co-founded and became chairman of Bridges Ventures, an innovative sustainable growth investor that delivers both financial returns and social and environmental benefits.[8] Bridges Ventures has raised four successful funds to date: Bridges Ventures Funds I and II, the Bridges Sustainable Property Fund and the Bridges Social Entrepreneurs Fund. The organisation currently has £150million under management.[9] The portfolio includes a number of businesses who invest in regeneration areas or have a sustainable business model. Bridges Ventures has had several successful exits to date, including The Office, Simply Switch, HS Atec and Harlands of Hull.[10]

    In 2003, Sir Ronald co-founded the Portland Trust with Sir Harry Solomon, co-founder and former chairman and CEO of Hillsdown Holdings. The aim of Portland Trust is to help develop the Palestinian private sector and relieve poverty through entrepreneurship in Israel. Portland Trust is involved in a number of important initiatives, including the development of financial and economic infrastructure, housing, trade, investment, and entrepreneurship.[11] The Portland Trust has offices in London, Tel Aviv and Ramallah.

    In 2005, Sir Ronald chaired the Commission on Unclaimed Assets.[12] which looked into how unclaimed funds from dormant bank accounts could be used to benefit the public. The final recommendation of the Commission was that the funds should be used to a social investment bank be created to help finance charitable and voluntary projects by providing seed capital and loan guarantees.[13]

    In 2007 he co-founded and became a non-executive director of Social Finance, a London-based advisory that has worked to create a social investment market in the UK. The organisation provides access to capital, designs social finance interventions and offers advice to investors and social sector entities interested in delivering significant social impact.[14] It has developed the social impact bondwhich is a financial instrument that is an outcomes-based contract in which public sector commissioners commit to pay for significant improvement in social outcomes for a defined population.[15] Social Finance has set up a pilot social impact bond with the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in September 2010 to reduce re-offending amongst male prisoners leaving HMP Peterborough who have served a sentence of less than 12 months. During the Peterborough Prison pilot, experienced social sector organisations, such as St. Giles Trust and The Ormiston Children and Families Trust, will provide intensive support to 3,000 short-term prisoners over a six-year period, both inside prison and after release, to help them resettle into the community. If this initiative reduces re-offending by 7.5%, or more, investors will receive from Government a share of the long term savings. If the SIB delivers a drop in re-offending beyond the threshold, investors will receive an increasing return the greater the success at achieving the social outcome, up to a maximum of 13%.[16]

    In 2010, Sir Ronald Cohen chaired a review of the work of the SITF in 2010 and published a report titled Social Investment: Ten Years On which assess the changes that had happened over the last decade in the area of social investment. The report found that there are three specific iniatives that will help define the future of the social investment market in the UK: (1) establishing the infrastructure necessary to create a dynamic market in social investment through initiatives such as the Social Investment Bank; (2) creating new tools to deliver social change through financial instruments such as the social impact bond; (3) engaging the financial sector to invest in disadvantaged areas through the Community Reinvestment Act.[17]

    [edit] Big Society CapitalMain article: Big Society Capital
    Since its official launch in July 2011, Sir Ronald Cohen has been the Chairman of Big Society Capital, Britain’s first social investment bank. The role of the BSC is to help speed up the growth of the social investment market, so that socially orientated financial organisations will have greater access to affordable capital, using an estimated £400million in unclaimed assets left dormant in bank accounts for over 15 years and £200million from the UK’s largest high street banks.[18] Its first £1 million investment from dormant accounts has gone to the Private Equity Foundation, an organisation whose mission it is to support disadvantaged young people into employment, education or training.[18]

    [edit] CharityIn January 2005, Cohen became a Director of the British Museum. Cohen is a member of the executive committee of the International Institute of Strategic Studies.

    [edit] ControversiesCohen was chairman of Apax at the time of the Apax-owned British United Shoe Machinery pension collapse which left 544 workers, many of them long service, without any pension. Collapse followed demerger from USM-Texon and asset transfer between the companies. Pension funds were transferred to the new BUSM scheme two weeks before receivership, and 4 days before a new revaluation was due.[19] MPs Edward Garnier, Patricia Hewitt and Ashok Kumar all called for a proper enquiry, Garnier citing the “mysterious circumstances” under which the pensions “disappeared”,[20] whilst Hewitt said “it is clearly important that such serious allegations are properly investigated.”[21] No new investigation took place, leading Kumar to say “I think these people need flogging. I feel so angry on behalf of decent upright citizens robbed of their basic human rights. … These are greedy, selfish capitalists who live on the backs of others.”[22]

    [edit] PoliticsIn 1974 Cohen stood as the parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Party in Kensington North, and in 1979 he stood as its European candidate in London West.

    In 1996 he switched allegiance to the Labour Party, becoming a supporter of Tony Blair. In 2004, Cohen was the Labour Party’s fourth largest financial supporter, after Lord Sainsbury, Sir Christopher Ondaatje and Lord Hamlyn.

    In November 2011 he was financially linked with a new “non-political” movement in Israel, the sole goal of which is to change the country’s electoral system.[23]

    [edit] PersonalIn 1972 Cohen married Carol Belmont; they divorced in 1975. In 1983 he married a second time, to Claire Enders; they divorced in 1986. Cohen married his third wife in 1987, Sharon Harel, daughter of Yossi Harel, the commander of the Holocaust survivors’ ship Exodus. Sharon is a film producer; her credits include Gosford Park.[3] They have two children, Tamara and Jonathan, and live in London.

    workplace violence


    In order to estimate rates and identify risk factors for assaults on employees of a state psychiatric hospital, we examined workers’ compensation claims, hospital-recorded incident reports, and data collected in a survey of ward staff. Results revealed 13.8 workers’ compensation claims due to assault per 100 employees per year. Assaults were responsible for 60% of total claims. Incident reports revealed 35 injuries due to assault per 100 employees per year. Survey data revealed 415 injuries due to assault per 100 employees per year. Of the respondents, 73% reported at least a minor injury during the past year. Assault management training in the past year was associated with less severe injuries. Working in isolation, the occupation of mental health technician, and working on the geriatric-medical hospital unit were associated with more severe injuries during the past year. Assaults on staff in psychiatric hospitals represent a significant and underrecognized occupational hazard. Am. J. Ind. Med. 31:92–99 © 1997 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

    Francis Xavier Alexander Shields, Jr. (May 16, 1941 – April 27, 2003) was an American businessman and an executive at Revlon in New York, but is perhaps best known as the father of the actress Brooke Shields.

    [edit] Life and workHe was born in New York City, the eldest son of Francis Xavier Alexander Sr., a top-ranking American tennis player and of the Italian Princess Donna Marina Torlonia di Civitella-Cesi. Through his mother he is related to several Italian princely families (most notably Borgia, Medici, d’Este, di Savoia). His uncle, for example, was Don Alessandro Torlonia, 5th Prince di Civitella-Cesi, the husband of the Spanish Infanta Beatriz de Borbón y Battenberg, so that he and King Juan Carlos of Spain share cousins in the Torlonia-de Borbón family.

    He attended the Buckley School in Manhattan and St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire, before graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, where he captained the crew that rowed in the Henley Royal Regatta in 1962 and was a member of St. Anthony Hall. An avid sportsman, Shields never lost his love of rowing and founded the[1] Power Ten New York, an organization dedicated to the sport, in 1980.

    After starting his career on Wall Street, he moved to Palm Beach, Florida, in 1988, forming a real-estate company. An avid hunter and fisherman, the 6-foot-5 inch Shields spent much of his free time at the camp he owned in rural west Florida, Canoe Creek.[2] In 1964, he married Maria Theresia Schmon (or Schmonn), better known as Brooke Shields’ mother/manager, Teri Shields. After their divorce, when Brooke was only five months old, he married, in 1970, Diana “Didi” Lippert, former wife of Thomas Gore Auchincloss, who is the son of Hugh D. Auchincloss and half-brother of Gore Vidal and a stepbrother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He had three daughters by his second marriage: Marina, Olympia, and Christina.

    He died in Palm Beach, Florida, of prostate cancer at the age of 61


    Hugh Dudley Auchincloss, Jr. (August 15, 1897 – November 20, 1976) was an American stockbroker and lawyer who became the second husband of Janet Lee Bouvier, the mother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

    [edit] BiographyAuchincloss was born at Hammersmith Farm in Newport, Rhode Island. He was the son of Hugh Dudley Auchincloss (1858–1913), a merchant and financier, and Emma Brewster Jennings, daughter of Oliver B. Jennings, a founder of Standard Oil. His uncles were Edgar Stirling Auchincloss (father of James C. Auchincloss) and John Winthrop Auchincloss (grandfather of Louis Auchincloss).[1][2] He had two older sisters, Esther Judson Auchincloss and Ann Burr Auchincloss. His father is the youngest brother of Edgar Stirling Auchincloss, making Hugh the nephew of Edgar Stirling Auchincloss and cousin of politician James C. Auchincloss.

    Auchincloss graduated in 1920 from Yale University, where he was elected to the Elihu Senior Society. He earned a law degree from Columbia University in 1924. Auchincloss served in the United States Navy during World War I and worked for the Office of Naval Intelligence and the War Department during World War II. Auchincloss had been a special agent with the Commerce Department before joining the State Department as an aviation specialist in 1927. Four years later, he resigned government service and used some of the enormous inheritance from his mother to found the Washington brokerage firm of Auchincloss, Parker & Redpath.

    Baroness Pannonica de Koenigswarter (10 December 1913 – 30 November 1988) was a British-born jazz patroness and writer. She was a leading patron of bebop music. She was a scion of the prominent Rothschild international financial dynasty.

    Kathleen Annie Pannonica Rothschild was born in December 1913, in London, the youngest daughter of Charles Rothschild and his wife, Hungarian baroness Rozsika Edle von Wertheimstein, daughter of Baron Alfred von Wertheimstein of Transylvania. She was born into a branch of the wealthiest family in the world at the time.[1] Her paternal grandfather was Baron Nathan Rothschild. She grew up in Waddesdon Manor, among other family houses. The name “Pannonica” (nicknamed “Nica”) derives from Eastern Europe’s Pannonian plain. Her friend Thelonious Monk reported that she was named after a species of butterfly her father had discovered, although her great-niece has found that the source of the name is a rare kind of moth.[2] She was a niece of Walter Rothschild, the 2nd Baron Rothschild, and her brother Victor Rothschild became the 3rd Baron Rothschild. (According to thepeerage.com, she was granted the rank of the daughter of a baron on 15 March 1938.[3]) Her elder sister Dame Miriam Rothschild was a distinguished scientist and zoologist.

    In 1935 she married French diplomat Baron Jules de Koenigswarter, later a Free French hero. They lived together in a château in north-west France. She worked for Charles de Gaulle during World War II. The couple separated in 1951 and she moved to New York City, permanently renting a suite at the Hotel Stanhope on Fifth Avenue. As a result of their separation, Koenigswarter was disinherited by her family, the Rothschilds.[4] The couple eventually divorced in 1956.[5] In 1958, she purchased a house with a Manhattan skyline view, originally built for film director Josef von Sternberg, at 63 Kingswood Road in Weehawken, NJ.

    [edit] JazzIn New York, Koenigswarter became a friend and patron of many prominent jazz musicians, hosting jam sessions in her hotel suite, and lending them her chauffeur and Rolls Royce when they needed a lift to performances. She is sometimes referred to as the “bebop baroness” or “jazz baroness” because of her patronage of Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker among others. Following Parker’s death in her Stanhope rooms in 1955, Koenigswarter was asked to leave by the hotel management; she re-located to the Bolivar Hotel at 230 Central Park West, a building commemorated in Thelonious Monk’s 1956 tune “Ba-lue Bolivar Ba-lues-are”.

    She was introduced to Thelonious Monk by jazz pianist/composer Mary Lou Williams in Paris while attending the “Salon du Jazz 1954”, and championed his work in the USA, writing the liner notes for his 1962 Columbia album Criss-Cross, and even took criminal responsibility when she and Monk were charged with marijuana possession by the police. After Monk ended his public performances in the mid-1970s he retired to Koenigswarter’s house in Weehawken, New Jersey, where he died in 1982.

    [edit] LegacyThere are numerous compositions in her honour. Gigi Gryce’s “Nica’s Tempo”, Sonny Clark’s “Nica”, Horace Silver’s “Nica’s Dream”, Kenny Dorham’s “Tonica”, Kenny Drew’s “Blues for Nica”, Freddie Redd’s “Nica Steps Out”, Barry Harris’s “Inca”, Tommy Flanagan’s “Thelonica” and Thelonious Monk’s “Pannonica” were all named after her. The San Francisco art rock band Oxbow released a recording entitled “Pannonica” name checking Koenigswarter (unrelated to the Thelonious Monk composition) with reissues of their 1991 album King of the Jews.

    ***NOTE*** ROSS***
    Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield Radziwill Ross (née Bouvier, born March 3, 1933) best known as Lee Radziwill, is an American socialite, public relations executive, and former actress and interior decorator. She is the younger sister of the late First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and sister-in-law of President John F. Kennedy. Her niece Caroline Bouvier Kennedy is named after her.

    Born March 3, 1933, in Southampton, New York, Caroline Lee Bouvier, called Lee after her maternal grandfather James T. Lee, was the daughter of John Vernou Bouvier III and his wife, the former Janet Norton Lee.[1] She attended Miss Porter’s School and Sarah Lawrence College.[2]

    [edit] Marriages and childrenRadziwill has been married three times. Her first marriage, in April 1953, was to Michael Temple Canfield, a publishing executive who had been adopted as an infant by the American publisher Cass Canfield. He was the son of notorious socialite Kiki Preston. It was rumoured that his biological father was Prince George, Duke of Kent, a member of the British Royal Family; if so, then Canfield would be a first cousin of the present Queen. They divorced in 1959, and the marriage was annulled by the Roman Catholic Church in November 1962.[3]

    Her second marriage, on March 19, 1959, was to the Polish prince Stanisław Albrecht Radziwiłł, who divorced his second wife, the former Grace Maria Kolin,[4] and received a Roman Catholic annulment of his first marriage to marry the former Mrs. Canfield. (His second marriage had never been acknowledged by the Roman Catholic Church, so no annulment was necessary.)[3]

    On September 23, 1988, Radziwill became the second wife of American film director and choreographer Herbert Ross.[2] They divorced in 2001, shortly before his death.

    In his book Nemesis, author Peter Evans has stated that Radziwill also had a long-standing affair with Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, and was privately bitterly disappointed when he married her elder sister.

    Augustus Cass Canfield (April 26, 1897, New York City – March 27, 1986, New York City) was an American publishing executive who was the longtime president and chairman of Harper & Brothers, later Harper & Row.

    Canfield was the son of Augustus Cass Canfield (1854—1904), a wealthy engineer and yachtsman, and his wife, the former Josephine Houghteling. His stepfather was Frank Jay Griswold. He also was a great-grandson of Presidential candidate Lewis Cass. He had two sisters: Mary Cass Canfield and Laura Cass Canfield (Mrs William Lawrence Wood).

    He attended the Groton School and Harvard University, graduating from Harvard in 1919 after serving as a lieutenant in the United States Army during World War I. Canfield also studied at New College, Oxford and trekked through Asia, retracing the route of Marco Polo.

    [edit] Publishing careerAfter returning to New York, he worked as a reporter and advertising salesman for the New York Post. In 1924, he invested in Harper & Brothers and became manager of its London office. He held various executive positions with Harper’s in London and New York between then and 1931; among the writers who he signed to Harper’s contracts were James Thurber, E. B. White, J. B. Priestley, Harold Laski, John Gunther, and Julian Huxley. EM Delafield dedicated The Provincial Lady Goes Further to him.[1]

    Canfield was president of Harper & Brothers from 1931–45, board chairman from 1945–55, and chairman of the executive committee from 1955-67. From 1967 until his death in 1986, he was House Senior Editor at Harper’s. He also wrote seven nonfiction books.

    [edit] Government and political activitiesDuring World War II, Canfield took a leave of absence from Harper’s to serve as a member of the Board of Economic Warfare, the Foreign Economic Administration, and the United States Office of War Information. He was a founder of the journal Foreign Affairs.

    Canfield campaigned for Adlai Stevenson in 1956. He was a strong supporter of birth control, served as chair of the executive committee of Planned Parenthood, and traveled extensively giving speeches and raising money to support the organization.

    [edit] FamilyCanfield was thrice married.

    He married his first wife, Katherine Temple Emmet, in 1922 and was divorced by her in June 1937 (she married, in October 1937, John D W Churchill). They had two sons: Michael Temple Canfield (1926–69, adopted), a London representative of Harper & Row; and Cass Canfield Jr., an executive at Harper & Row. According to the memoirs of Loelia, Duchess of Westminster, King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom believed that Michael Canfield was actually the biological son of his brother Prince George, Duke of Kent and socialite Kiki Preston; Michael became the first husband of Lee Radziwill.

    Canfield’s second wife was Jane Sage White, a sculptor, the former wife of Charles Fairchild Fuller, and a daughter of Ernest Ingersoll White. They married in 1938, and Jane Canfield died in 1984. By this marriage Canfield had three stepchildren: Jane Sage Fuller, Blair Fairchild Fuller, and Isabelle Whitney “Jill” Fuller.

    In 1984, Canfield married Joan H. King.

    *NOTE* Cecil Goeldner said his grandmother was Emma Canfield*

    Again from above:

    Known as Bunny, she is the eldest child of Gerard Barnes Lambert, Sr., a president of Gillette Safety Razor Co. and a founder of Warner-Lambert (Warner-Lambert is now part of Pfizer, following a 2000 merger).[1] One of her grandfathers, chemist Jordan Lambert, invented Listerine, although it was her father who commercialized it.[2] Her mother was the former Rachel Lowe. She had two siblings: Gerard Barnes Lambert, Jr. (1912–1947; married Elsa Conver, former wife of Angus D. Mackintosh); and Lily Cary Lambert (1914–2006; married William Wilson Fleming and John Gilman McCarthy).[1]

    Mellon’s parents divorced in 1933, and in 1934, her mother re-married her former brother-in-law, Dr. Malvern Bryan Clopton, the widower of Gerard Lambert, Sr.’s sister, Lily Lambert Walker. In 1936, Gerard Lambert, Sr. also was re-married, to Grace Cleveland Lansing Mull, the former wife of John B. Mull and a daughter of Henry Livingston Lansing.[citation needed]

    Forbes Magazine has been unable to put any sort of definitive number on Mellon’s net worth since much of her fortune is tied up in trusts, but it is apparent that she is both extraordinarily wealthy and very private. In 2011, it was revealed that she had lost US$5.75M to investment adviser and convicted Ponzi scheme operator Ken Starr. Her attorney, Alex Forger, said: “She’s well off, but assets are not liquid.” She maintains homes in Antigua, Nantucket, and Oyster Harbors on Cape Cod, but two apartments in Paris and a townhouse in New York City were recently sold.[2] Her main residence, Oak Spring Farms, a 4,000-acre (1,600 ha) estate in Virginia, has its own 1-mile (1,600 m) long airstrip for her Falcon 2000.[3][4] She amassed an extraordinary collection of works by artist Mark Rothko, having purchased many of his 1950s works directly from his New York studio. One of the works, Yellow Expanse, is considered one of the greatest works that remains in private hands.[4][5]

    Mellon has long been known for her maximum discretion and minimum exposure. In a rare 1969 New York Times article, she proclaimed that “nothing should be noticed”.[6]

    [edit] MarriagesRachel Lowe Lambert married Stacy Barcroft Lloyd, Jr. in Philadelphia in 1932.[7] Lloyd served in the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. They divorced in 1948. They had two children:

    Stacy Barcroft Lloyd, III
    Eliza Winn Lloyd (died May 7, 2008; married and divorced Viscount Moore).[8] In May 2000, Eliza was hit by a truck while crossing a Manhattan street and suffered a severe brain injury. She became quadriplegic and unable to speak. She spent the remaining eight years of her life under round-the-clock care at Oak Spring Farms.[2][9]
    Lambert and Lloyd became close friends of banking heir and art collector Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary Conover, who died of an asthma attack in 1946. After she divorced Lloyd, Paul and Bunny were married on May 1, 1948.[4] By this marriage, she had two stepchildren, Timothy Mellon and Catherine Conover Mellon (later Mrs. John Warner and now known as Catherine Conover). Together the couple collected and donated more than 1,000 works of art, mostly eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European paintings, to the National Gallery of Art.[10] The couple also bred and raced thoroughbred horses, including a winner of the Kentucky Derby.[11]

    In his autobiography, Reflections in a Silver Spoon, Paul Mellon wrote movingly of the warmth his wife brought to Oak Spring Farms, on the National Register of Historic Places. The couple decided to move out of the property’s stately brick house, designed in 1941 by William Adams Delano, whose neo-Georgian mansions were much favored by Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and other plutocrats of that era. They commissioned New York architect H. Page Cross to design Little Oak Spring, the much cozier farmhouse, completed in 1955, where Mellon still lives.[4]

    [edit] Gardening careerMellon was a longtime friend of John and Jacqueline Kennedy, advising Mrs. Kennedy first on fine arts and antiques during the Kennedy White House restoration and then contributing to the design of the grounds of the President’s house. In 1961, on Mrs. Kennedy’s request, Mellon redesigned the White House Rose Garden creating a more open space for public ceremony and introducing American species of plants including Magnolia × soulangeana. She next began to work on the White House’s East Garden, but was unable to complete it before the assassination of President Kennedy. First Lady Lady Bird Johnson asked Mellon to complete work on the East Garden and in 1965 it was dedicated as the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden.

    [edit] Later years and support for John EdwardsHer daughter Eliza was hit by a car and became a quadriplegic not long after the death of her husband, Paul, in 1999. Eliza died in 2008. Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of friend Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, sat beside her during her daughter’s funeral.[6]

    Mellon expressed interest in the John Edwards campaign as early as 2004, because he reminded her of President Kennedy, but when she called his campaign office with an offer to help, no one recognized her name and she wasn’t called back.[4] That changed when Edwards sought the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination. In August 2008, Edwards’s campaign finance chairman Fred Baron told NBC News that he had been providing financial assistance to both Rielle Hunter and Andrew Young without Edwards’s knowledge. He further stated that no campaign funds were used. Mellon allegedly gave more than $725,000 to John Edwards over an eight-month period (through decorator Bryan Huffman) beginning in May 2007. The check falsely referred to as “chairs”, “antique Charleston table” and “bookcase.” During this period Mellon wrote a note to Young saying: “I was sitting alone in a grim mood — furious that the press attacked Senator Edwards on the price of a haircut. But it inspired me — from now on, all haircuts, etc. that are necessary and important for his campaign — please send the bills to me… It is a way to help our friend without government restrictions.” The funds were believed to be used to secretly support Hunter, with whom Edwards had an extra-marital affair and child. The FBI interviewed Mellon at her estate in Upperville, Virginia, on two occasions in 2010.[6] Then in early December of that same year, her son, Stacy Lloyd, III, grandsons, Stacy Lloyd, IV and Thomas Lloyd, along with grandson Thomas Lloyd’s wife, Ricki Lloyd, appeared before a grand jury in Raleigh, North Carolina.[12] On June 3, 2011, Edwards was indicted on using campaign funds to help cover-up an affair and pregnancy during the 2008 presidential campaign. Mellon was widely believed to be ‘Person C’ described in the indictment.[3] Just one week prior to his indictment in late May 2011, Edwards visited Mellon at her Upperville estate. Following his indictment, the judge forbade Edwards to speak with any potential witnesses. People close to Mellon said that the money was a personal gift and that she had no idea how Mr. Edwards used it.[6]

    Although described as strong and resilient, her health has deteriorated due to a bad fall and a bout with cancer. She no longer spends her days gardening. “I had a serious operation a little while ago, and ever since then I’ve been very, very weak,” Mellon says. “I’m going along on very weak wheels.” Most distressing is her loss of vision, as a result of macular degeneration, but she continues to stay active.[2] She still swims and does Pilates, which she learned from the exercise’s inventor Joseph Pilates more than 50 years ago.[6]

    Lucius S. Lowe opened Lowe’s North Wilkesboro Hardware in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina, in 1921. The business was inherited by his daughter, Ruth, when Lucius died in 1940. She sold the company to her brother, Jim, that same year. Jim Lowe and Ruth’s husband, Carl Buchan, both served in World War II, and during the war, the store was run by Ruth and her mother. Jim took on Carl (honorably discharged after receiving an injury) as a partner in 1943.

    Under Buchan’s management, the store focused on hardware and building materials. Before then, the product mix had also included notions, dry goods, horse tack, snuff, produce, and groceries. The company bought a second store in Sparta, North Carolina, in 1949.

    Carl Buchan and Jim Lowe differed on expanding the company to new areas, and they split in 1952, with Buchan taking control of the hardware and building supply business, and Lowe taking other joint ventures the two controlled, including a car dealership. Buchan became the sole owner of Lowe’s. Lowe started the Lowes Foods grocery store chain in 1954.

    Buchan quickly expanded, opening stores by 1955 in Asheville, Charlotte, and Durham, North Carolina. More stores opened through the 1950s.

    In 1960 Carl Buchan died of a heart attack at age 44. His five-man executive team, which included Robert Strickland and Leonard Herring, took the company public in 1961. By 1962 Lowe’s operated 21 stores and reported annual revenues of $32 million

    I have found some interesting information that has been found using the time feature on Google; and It’s About the Satanic Church/Following in Newtown, CT! Doing more research I came across Curtis M. LeBlanc — PO Box 3184 Newtown, CT 06470 & (**** West ST, Newtown, CT – Early 40s – Est. $1M Home Value) He is a Church of Satan Member and his responsibilities are helping new members sign up. Here is what the Satanic church is called in Newtown, CT: Church of Satan outpost, (AKA Church of Tiamat) I couldn’t find anything about that church but maybe the estimated location. The below the image the article has some interesting information about the Satanic Followers or Reports of events in Newtown, CT back in the winter of 1996.

    Look this place up on Youtube, you’ll see some interesting things. I guess a good porition of the tunnels have been closed up. The only one that was still remained open was the Litchfield to Yale Conservatory (Lab). They have been doing construction to it though, so I don’t know what remains or is wiped out. I want to make it out there soon though.

    Fairfield State Hospital (also known as Fairfield Hills State Hospital or Fairfield Hills) was a psychiatric hospital in Newtown, Connecticut, which operated from 1931 until 1995. At its peak the hospital housed over 4,000 patients. The entire facility was owned and operated by the State of Connecticut Department of Mental Health. The facility is just southeast of the center of Newtown WikiMiniAtlas41°24′N 73°17′W / 41.40°N 73.29°W

    Fairfield State Hospital was created due to overcrowding at the other two state hospitals. Walter P. Crabtree, Sr. designed the campus-like facility. Dedicated to a common development theme, the institutional buildings were of a modified colonial style, built of red brick and attractively accented. On June 10, 1931, the cornerstone was laid for the Fairfield State Hospital (renamed to Fairfield Hills Hospital in 1963 per P.A. 278).[1] The campus was constructed largely fireproof throughout. Some later constructed buildings were built during the 1940s and 1950s.

    The hospital contained 16 buildings on 100 acres (0.40 km2), plus another 670 acres (2.7 km2) of land around them. The acreage consisted of large farm meadows and a forest. A circular network of roads connected the buildings.

    The hospital opened and received its first patients on June 1, 1933 [1] from Connecticut Valley Hospital. There were initially less than 500 patients, and only 3 doctors. By the late 1960s Fairfield Hills housed more than 4,000 patients, 20 doctors, 50 nurses, and 100 assorted other employees.

    On December 8, 1995 the facility was closed and patients were transferred to the Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut.[1] The records from Fairfield Hills Hospital are located in RG 021, subgroup 7 at the Connecticut State Library & Archives in restricted files arranged into three series:[2]

    Patients, 1933-1995 admission and discharge records;
    Personnel, 1934-1943 records of separation; and
    Medical Staff Records, 1937-1974 records of birth and deportation, autopsies, and medical examiner cases.
    [edit] ClosureDue to deinstitutionalization in the 1960s and 1970s, there was less of a need for hospitals like Fairfield Hills. With the high cost of running underused hospitals, state hospitals around the country shut their doors. In 1995, Gov. John Rowland closed Fairfield Hills and its sister hospital, Norwich State Hospital. All patients that remained were moved to Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown.[3]

    The Town of Newtown rented out the first floor of Canaan House from the mid-1990s up until 2005; it was home to the town’s Board of Education, Planning & Zoning, and Fire Marshall. The Reed Intermediate School is also located on the property.

    [edit] Therapy and treatmentDuring its operation, treatments at Fairfield Hills included hydrotherapy, use of the drugs metrazol and insulin in shock therapy, patient seclusion, electric shock therapy, treatment of alcoholism, and frontal lobotomy. In the first year that psychosurgery was performed at Fairfield Hills over 100 patients were treated.

    [edit] TunnelsA majority of the staff and utility buildings, along with all of the patient buildings were connected by a series of concrete tunnels. These tunnels were mostly used to move patients and equipment between the buildings, especially during the winter months and on bad weather days. Doctors, nurses, and other various workers also used the tunnels, and when required, even corpses were transported through them to the on-campus morgue. Due to the increasing safety concerns, illegal trespassing, and vandalism to buildings by parties attempting to gain access to the tunnels, the tunnels were sealed by the Town of Newtown in 2009. All access ways leading to the tunnels were welded and / or boarded shut. During demolition of certain buildings, to pave way for a recreation center, some tunnels were filled in to level the ground.

    [edit] Current statusThe Town of Newtown acquired the former Fairfield Hills Hospital property from the State of Connecticut in 2004. The Town of Newtown established the Fairfield Hills Authority, a municipal development agency, to implement new construction on the site. This calls for reserving a major portion of the property for municipal and cultural use, as well as passive and active recreational use. Also, a new building has been built on the site called the Newtown Youth Academy. It was paid for by private funders and features an indoor turf field, basketball court, and full workout center.[4]

    The Town of Newtown selected Bridgeport Hall as the location for its new municipal offices. It was dedicated on November 21, 2009, and is now called the Newtown Municipal Center.[5]

    [edit] In popular culture
    Several film and television productions have used the facility as a set. The film Man to Man was shot in Kent House in the late 1950s.[citation needed] The feature film Sleepers used the hospital as a setting. Actors on location included Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt and Kevin Bacon. Several scenes used local boys as extras.[6] The film adaptation of The Madman’s Tale was to be filmed between October 26, 2007 and January 8, 2008. Due to complications with the cast, production was stopped before anything was filmed on location.[7] An episode of MTV’s Fear was shot at the hospital, its identity concealed from the participants. A local newspaper characterized the site as an “attractive nuisance” and suggested that negative impressions about the site created by films and TV series were “misguided.

    Placid and easygoing as a child and teenager, the maturing Kennedy became increasingly assertive in her personality. She was reportedly subject to violent mood swings. Some observers have since attributed this behavior to her difficulties in keeping up with siblings who were expected to perform to high standards, as well as the hormonal surges associated with puberty. In any case, the family had difficulty dealing with the often-stormy Rosemary, who had begun to sneak out at night from the convent where she was educated and cared for.[10]

    In 1941, when Rosemary was 23, doctors told her father that a new neurosurgical procedure, lobotomy, would help calm her mood swings and sometimes-violent outbursts.[11] Joseph P. Kennedy decided that Rosemary should have the lobotomy performed, but did not inform Rose until afterwards. At the time, relatively few lobotomies had been performed; James W. Watts, who carried out the procedure with Walter Freeman, described what happened:

    “We went through the top of the head, I think she was awake. She had a mild tranquilizer. I made a surgical incision in the brain through the skull. It was near the front. It was on both sides. We just made a small incision, no more than an inch.” The instrument Dr. Watts used looked like a butter knife. He swung it up and down to cut brain tissue. “We put an instrument inside,” he said. As Dr. Watts cut, Dr. Freeman put questions to Rosemary. For example, he asked her to recite the Lord’s Prayer or sing “God Bless America” or count backwards. … “We made an estimate on how far to cut based on how she responded.” … When she began to become incoherent, they stopped.[12]
    [edit] AftermathRosemary lived for several years at Craig House, a private psychiatric hospital an hour north of New York City.[13] In 1949, she moved to a house in Jefferson, Wisconsin where she lived for the rest of her life on the grounds of the St. Coletta School for Exceptional Children (formerly known as “St. Coletta Institute for Backward Youth”).[14]

    Archbishop Cushing had told her father about St. Coletta’s, an institution for more than three hundred people with disabilities, and her father traveled to and built a private house for her about a mile outside St. Coletta’s main campus near Alverno House which was designed for adults who needed lifelong care.[15] The nuns called the house “the Kennedy cottage”.[16] Two Catholic nuns, Sister Margaret Ann and Sister Leona, provided her care along with a student and a woman who worked on ceramics with Rosemary three nights a week. Alan Borsari supervised the team and was able to call in specialists.[17] Rosemary had a dog and a car that could be used to take her for rides.[16]

    Because of her condition, Rosemary became largely detached from her family, but was visited regularly by her mother and by her sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. did not visit Rosemary at the institution.[18] Occasionally, following the death of her father, Rosemary was taken to visit relatives in Florida and Washington, D.C., and to her childhood home on Cape Cod.

    James Winston Watts (January 19, 1904 – November 15, 1994) was a neurosurgeon, born in Lynchburg, Virginia and a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Watts is noteworthy for his professional partnership with the neurologist and psychiatrist Walter Freeman. The two became advocates and prolific practitioners of psychosurgery, specifically the lobotomy. Watts is known for carrying out the lobotomy of Rose Marie Kennedy under the supervision of Freeman.

    [edit] Career
    After completing medical school in 1928, Watts worked as a research fellow at Yale before joining the faculty of the Department of Neurosurgery and Neurological Surgery at The George Washington University Hospital in 1935. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1969.

    Watts was recruited into a medical partnership by his colleague Walter Freeman, who needed the collaboration of a trained surgeon in order to practice the leucotomy, a technique pioneered by the Portuguese neurologist António Egas Moniz. In the procedure developed by Moniz, the “white matter” in the frontal lobes was severed using a leucotome, an instrument Moniz designed specifically for the procedure. Freeman and Watts acquired several of the instruments and performed their first operation in 1936. They eventually modified the procedure to sever more of the white matter, and renamed it lobotomy in order to distinguish it from the earlier procedure developed by Moniz. Their technique soon became the standard form of the operation, and was known as the “Freeman-Watts Procedure”.[1]

    Watts’ colleague, however, was less conservative and sought other ways to access the frontal lobes of the brain without the complications associated with conventional brain surgery. Inspired by the work of the Italian psychiatrist Amarro Fiamberti, Freeman developed, without the knowledge or participation of Watts, a procedure for reaching the frontal lobes by inserting a probe under the eyelid and above the tear duct, then hammering it through the thin bone of the eye socket. The instrument was swished around, severing the white matter, and was then repeated on the other side. The whole operation took only minutes under local anesthesia. This new procedure became known as the transorbital lobotomy, also dubbed the “ice pick lobotomy” because the instrument used, an orbitoclast, was very similar to a common ice pick. The new procedure also signaled the end of the professional relationship between Freeman and Watts. After performing the new procedure by himself on ten patients, Freeman finally revealed to Watts what he had been doing. Watts, unlike Freeman, was a trained neurosurgeon and adamantly believed lobotomy should only be performed by a proper surgeon. He insisted that Freeman cease performing operations alone, but it was to no avail and Watts soon left the practice that he had jointly established with Freeman.

    The 1950s saw the introduction of the first truly effective antipsychotic medications, notably Thorazine. This, combined with a growing discomfort among the medical profession and general public regarding lobotomy, led to a sharp decline in the use of the procedure. In the intervening years, the theoretical basis of lobotomy has been largely discredited.

    Watts retired in 1969, but continued his association with The George Washington University Hospital until the late 1980s.

    [edit] Personal life
    Watts was born in 1904 in Lynchburg, Virginia. He had two children with wife Julia Harrison Watts. He died in 1994.

    Walter Jackson Freeman II, M.D. (November 14, 1895 – May 31, 1972) was an American physician who specialized in lobotomy.[1] He was a member of the American Psychiatric Association.

    Walter J. Freeman was born on November 14, 1895 to a privileged family.[2] He was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by his parents. Freeman was also known for being a bit of an oddball and he complemented his theatrical approach to demonstrating surgery by sporting a cane, goatee, and a wide-brimmed hat.[2] Working in the field of medicine ran in his family and his grandfather, W.W. Keen was well known as a surgeon in the Civil War.[2] His father was also a very successful doctor. Freeman attended Yale University, which at the time was Yale College, beginning in 1912 and graduated with his undergraduate degree in 1916.[3] He then moved on to study neurology at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. While attending medical school he studied the work of William Spiller and idolized his groundbreaking work in the new field of the neurological sciences.[2] William Spiller also worked in Philadelphia and was credited by many in the world of psychology as being the founder of neurology.[2] Freeman applied for a coveted position working alongside Spiller in his home town of Philadelphia, but was rejected.[2]

    Shortly afterward, in 1924, Freeman relocated to Washington D.C. and started practicing as the first neurologist in the city.[2] Upon his arrival in D.C., Walter Freeman began work directing labs at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.[2] Working at the hospital and witnessing the pain and distress suffered by the patients encouraged him to continue his education in the field.[2] Freeman earned his PhD in neuropathology within the following few years and secured a position at George Washington University as head of the neurology department.[2]

    [edit] LobotomyMain articles: Psychosurgery and Lobotomy
    The first systematic attempt at human psychosurgery is commonly attributed to the Swiss psychiatrist Gottlieb Burckhardt.[4] Burckhardt’s experimental surgical forays were largely condemned at the time and in the subsequent decades psychosurgery was attempted only intermittently.[5] On November 12, 1935, a new psychosurgery procedure was performed in Portugal under the direction of the neurologist and physician Egas Moniz.[6] His new “leucotomy” procedure was used to treat patients with mental illness. Moniz became a mentor and idol for Freeman who modified the procedure renaming it the “lobotomy.”[6] One year after the first leucotomy, on September 14, 1936 Walter J. Freeman performed the very first prefrontal lobotomy in the United States on housewife Alice Hood Hammatt of Topeka, Kansas beginning his now infamous career as a neurosurgeon in the United States.[6] Freeman’s lobotomy procedure was assisted by fellow neurosurgeon and research partner, James Watts. By November after only two months performing their first lobotomy surgery, Freeman and Watts had already worked on 20 cases including several second, follow-up operations.[2] By 1942, the duo had performed over 200 lobotomy procedures and had published results claiming sixty three percent improved, 23 percent were reported to be unchanged and fourteen percent were worse after the surgery.[2]

    After almost ten years of performing lobotomies Freeman heard of a doctor in Italy named Amarro Fiamberti who operated on the brain through his patients’ eye sockets, allowing him to access the brain without drilling through the skull.[6] After experimenting with novel ways of performing these brain surgeries, Freeman formulated a new procedure called the transorbital lobotomy.[6] This new procedure became known as the icepick lobotomy and was performed by inserting a metal pick into the corner of each eye-socket and moving it back and forth, severing the connections to the prefrontal cortex in the frontal lobes of the brain.[7] He performed the transorbital lobotomy surgery for the first time in Washington D.C. on a housewife named Sallie Ellen Ionesco.[6] This transorbital lobotomy method did not require a neurosurgeon and could be performed outside of an operating room without the use of anesthesia by using electroconvulsive therapy to induce seizure.[7] The modifications to his lobotomy allowed Freeman to broaden the use of the surgery, which could be performed in state mental hospitals throughout the United States that were overpopulated and understaffed.[7] In 1950 Walter Freeman’s longtime partner James Watts left their practice and split from Freeman due to his opposition to the cruelty and overuse of the transorbital lobotomy.[6]

    Following his development of the icepick lobotomy, Freeman began traveling across the country visiting mental institutions in his personal van, which he called the “lobotomobile.”[8] He toured around the nation performing lobotomies and spreading their use by educating and training staff to perform the operation. Freeman’s name gained popularity despite the widespread criticism of his methods following a lobotomy on President John F. Kennedy’s sister Rosemary Kennedy, which left her with severe mental and physical disability.[2] A memoir written by former patient Howard Dully, called My Lobotomy documented his experiences with Freeman and his long recovery after undergoing a lobotomy surgery at 12 years old.[9] Walter Freeman charged just $25 for each procedure that he performed.[7] After four decades Freeman had personally performed as many as 3,400 lobotomy surgeries in 23 states, despite the fact that he had no formal surgical training.[2] In February 1967, Freeman performed his final surgery on Helen Mortensen.[6] Mortensen was a longterm patient and was receiving her third lobotomy from Freeman.[6] She died of a cerebral hemorrhage as did many of his other patients[quantify] and he was finally banned from performing surgery.[6] At age 57, Freeman retired from his position at George Washington University and opened up a modest practice in California.

  17. Renee says:

    Reverend Abraham Pierson (1646 – March 5, 1707[1]) was the first rector, from 1701 to 1707, and one of the founders of the Collegiate School — which later became Yale University. He was born in Southampton, Long Island, where his father, the Rev. Abraham Pierson (Sr.), was the pastor of the Puritan (Congregational) church. At that time, Southampton and much of eastern Long Island were administered as part of the Connecticut Colony.

    It is commonly stated that Abraham Pierson (Jr.) was born in Lynn, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1640 or 1641. This claim conflicts with his gravestone in present-day Clinton, Connecticut [see note 5], as well as the period he spent as a student at Harvard (1664 to 1668).

    Around 1647, Abraham’s family moved from Southampton to Branford in what is now Connecticut. At that time, Branford was affiliated with the (unchartered) New Haven Colony. The plans to move from Southampton to Branford began in 1644 when Southampton chose to become affiliated with Connecticut instead of New Haven. Abraham’s father was the pastor of the Puritan (Congregational) church in Branford from around 1647 to around 1667. [see note 6]

    In 1667, Abraham’s family moved to New Jersey where his father established the community of New Ark, present-day Newark, New Jersey. At that time, Abraham (Jr.) was a student at Harvard College. [see note 2]

    After graduating from Harvard College in 1668, Abraham was ordained a minister and he joined his father in New Ark. After his father’s death in 1678, Abraham succeeded his father as pastor of the First Congregational Church in Newark. Abraham also inherited a library of over 400 books from his father. [see note 7]

    In 1691, The Congregational Church in Newark apparently chose to become Presbyterian. At that time, Abraham moved to Greenwich, Connecticut to become the pastor of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich. In 1694, he moved to Killingworth (now Clinton, Connecticut).

    Abraham Pierson was the minister of the Killingworth Congregational Church at the same time he started to teach the first classes of what would become Yale University. The new school was supposed to conduct its classes in Saybrook, but the Rev. Pierson could not be relieved of his duties as the pastor in Killingworth. Because of this, the classes were in his parsonage. [see note 8]

    Abraham Pierson is today interred in Clinton, Connecticut. Abraham Pierson School in Clinton, Connecticut (grades 4-5) was named for him, and a bronze statue of him is located on East Main Street in Clinton, Connecticut.


    1. For the period of 1646 to about 1664, it has been assumed that Abraham Pierson, as a child, lived with his parents and followed the movements of his father, Rev. Abraham Pierson (Sr.). The Rev. Abraham Pierson, Sr. was one of the most prominent figures in the New Haven Colony, and his activities are well-documented in many places, including the following.

    Aaron Swartz
    Tech prodigy

    Aaron H. Swartz (November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013) was an American computer programmer, writer, archivist, political organizer, and Internet activist. Swartz co-authored the “RSS 1.0″ specification of RSS, and built the Web site framework web.py and the architecture for the Open Library. He also built Infogami, a company that merged with Reddit in its early days, through which he became an equal owner of the merged company.[i]

    Swartz also focused on sociology, civic awareness and activism. In 2010 he was a member of the Harvard University Center for Ethics. He cofounded the online group Demand Progress (best known recently for its campaign for Richard O’Dwyer) and later worked with US and international activist groups Rootstrikers and Avaaz.

    On January 6, 2011, Swartz was arrested in connection with systematic downloading of academic journal articles from JSTOR, which became the subject of a federal investigation.[2][3] JSTOR offended Swartz mainly for two reasons: it charged large fees for access to these articles but did not compensate the authors and it ensured that huge numbers of people are denied access to the scholarship produced by America’s colleges and universities.[4][5] On January 11, 2013, Swartz was found dead in his Crown Heights, Brooklyn, apartment, where he had hanged himself.

    Swartz was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Susan and Robert Swartz.[9] Swartz’s family lived in Highland Park, Illinois. His father founded a software company, and from a young age Swartz was interested in computing, ardently studying computers, the Internet and Internet culture.[10] When he was 13, Swartz was a winner of the ArsDigita Prize, a competition for young people who created “useful, educational, and collaborative” non-commercial Web sites. The prize included a trip to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and meetings with Internet notables. At the age of 14 Swartz was collaborating with experts in networking standards as a member of the working group that authored the RSS 1.0 Specification. Writing in Yahoo! News, Virginia Heffernan said about Swartz, “he agitated without cease—or compensation—for the free-culture movement.”[11]

    [edit] Infogami and RedditHe later attended Stanford University, but left after just one year.[10] Instead he founded the software company Infogami, a startup that was funded by Y Combinator’s first Summer Founders Program.[12]

    Through the Y Combinator program, Swartz started the wiki platform Infogami (later used to support the web.py and Open Library sites), but felt he needed co-founders to proceed. Y-Combinator organizers suggested that Infogami merge with Reddit,[13][14] which it did in November 2005.[13][15] While Reddit initially found it difficult to make money from the project, the site later gained in popularity, with millions of users visiting it each month. In late 2006, after months of negotiations, Reddit was sold to CondéNet, owners of Wired magazine.[10] Swartz moved with his company to San Francisco to work on Wired, but grew unhappy with the set-up[10] and in January, 2007, he was asked to resign from his position.[16] Swartz described himself as being ill and suffering from a constant depressed mood throughout 2007.[17] In September, 2007, Swartz joined with Simon Carstensen and launched Jottit. In 2010–2011 he was a fellow at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.[18]

    Swartz was also the creator of the web.py Web application framework,[19] and co-founded Demand Progress,[18] a progressive advocacy group that organizes people via email and other media for “contacting Congress and other leaders, funding pressure tactics, and spreading the word” about targeted issues.

    Aurora is a village and college town in Cayuga County, in the Town of Ledyard, north of Ithaca, New York, United States. The village had a population of 724 at the 2010 census, of which more than 400 were college students.

    In 1980 its Aurora Village-Wells College Historic District, with more than 50 contributing properties, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. From 2001 to 2007 redevelopment of historic properties in the village by entrepreneur Pleasant Rowland and the Aurora Foundation earned compliments, as well as provoking citizen concern, a lawsuit joined by state and national preservation organizations, and national media attention.

    Wells College, an institution of higher education for women founded by Henry Wells in 1868, is located in Aurora. It became coeducational in 2005, and since then enrollment has risen.

    Wells College is a private coeducational liberal arts college located in Aurora, Cayuga County, New York, on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. Initially an all-women’s institution, Wells became a co-ed college in Fall 2005. [1]

    Wells College is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York. It is about a half-hour drive from both Ithaca and Auburn, and an hour and 15 minutes from Syracuse and Rochester. It is part of the Aurora Village-Wells College Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The college has five residence halls, four academic buildings, and an average student body of 550. The student to faculty ratio is 9:1.

    The college has cross-enrollment with Cornell University and Ithaca College. It is strengthening its off-campus study programs and creating a business center. Undergraduate students are required to participate in off-campus internships during two of their winter recesses.

    The Wells motto is Habere et Dispertire – To Have and To Share

    Wells was established as a woman’s college in 1868 by Henry Wells, founder of Wells Fargo and the American Express Company. Wells had the building for Wells Seminary constructed on property he donated. Not long after its construction, Wells Seminary burnt to the ground. The first building was replaced in 1890 by the current Main Building. Henry Wells’ mansion, Glen Park, was later donated to the college for its use. It is part of the campus.

    After 1965, Walter Netsch designed the Louis Jefferson Long Library. The design of this award-winning building inspired two other buildings on campus, Barler Music Hall and Campbell Art Building.

    [edit] Co-educationAfter 136 years as a women’s college, Wells announced in October 2004 that it would become a co-educational institution in 2005. This drew student protests on campus.[2][3][4] Some parents of students also became involved in the protests.[5] Some of the students said that their protests were patterned after ones at Mills College in the early 1990s.[6] A website called Wells for Women was established [7] After the college’s decision to adopt coeducation was approved by its board, students filed a lawsuit, which the courts rejected.[8] The college adopted coeducation in 2005.


    Pleasant Rowland (born Pleasant Williams Thiele circa 1941) is an American educator, reporter, writer, entrepreneur and philanthropist. Rowland is best known for creating the American Girl brand. She is also notable for her efforts to redevelop historic properties in Aurora, New York, where she created a partnership with her alma mater Wells College.

    She has been married to Jerome Frautschi since 1977. He runs the family-owned Webcrafters book publishing company.

    Rowland was born in the Chicago area and grew up in Bannockburn, a suburb north of Chicago. She has three sisters and a brother.[1] Her sister Barbara Whitney Carr is president of the Chicago Horticultural Society.[2] Her father was Edward Thiele, a Chicago advertising executive who eventually became president of the Leo Burnett ad agency.

    After graduating from Wells College in 1962, Rowland embarked on the first of several careers. From 1962 to 1968, she was a schoolteacher in several states. She was a news reporter and anchor for ABC affiliate station KGO-TV from 1968 to 1971.

    Rowland left that industry to pursue a career as a textbook writer. For several years she was involved in writing and publishing children’s textbooks. She was also the publisher of the Children’s Magazine Guide.[3] In the 1970s, Roza created a comprehensive language arts program, called Beginning to Read, Write, and Listen. It was informally known as the “letterbooks”, and designed to be used for kindergarten and first grade students. Through the years the program has undergone several revisions and updates.

    [edit] CareerIn 1986 Rowland founded the Pleasant Company, which manufactures the “American Girl” dolls, books and accessories. Rowland was inspired to create the American Girl brand because of her longstanding interest in history. A visit to Colonial Williamsburg led her to think that young girls might become interested in history through identifying with dolls based on historic periods. Each doll is designed with a story that places it in a specific historical time period. Books, clothing and other accessories are marketed separately for each doll.

    The company’s growth was rapid as it added dolls, books, clothing for dolls and girls, and numerous other accessories, such as dollhouses and children’s furniture. In marketing synergy, her company created stores in major cities, events, and films planned around the dolls and their accessories. For instance, parents may pay to reserve space at stores for American Girl parties for their daughters and friends. Stores have public restaurants where mothers and daughters can have tea or other meals.

    In 1998 Rowland sold the Pleasant Company (now American Girl) to Mattel for $700 million. Based in Middleton, Wisconsin, the company reached $350 million in sales in 2001. As of 2008, it is second in U.S. sales only to those of the Barbie doll.

    In 2001 Rowland purchased bankrupt MacKenzie-Childs, based in Aurora, NY. After Rowland restructured her management team in 2006 MacKenzie-Childs became profitable. In 2008 Rowland sold MacKenzie-Childs to Lee Feldman and Howard Cohen – part owners of Twin Lakes Capital.

    In 2004 Rowland founded Rowland Reading Foundation to promote the Rowland Reading Program.[4]

    September 22, 2010 received Honorary Doctoral Degree of Humane Letters from Edgewood College in Madison Wisconsin.

    [edit] PhilanthropyRowland and husband Jerome Frautschi are major philanthropists in Madison, Wisconsin. Frautschi is from the Madison area, where his family has been based there for several generations. They have made substantial contributions to Madison; together, they made one of the largest single contributions, a $205 million gift to build the Overture Center for the Arts, Madison’s performing arts and civic center. Originally, their donation was anonymous; later, the donor was revealed to be Jerome Frautschi. (Frautschi is said to have wholly financed the project with his personal funds from the sale of his stock in American Girl.)

      Again from wiki above on Edmond Safra*


      The Safra family is a Mizrahi Jewish family from Beirut.[1][2][3] The Safras were engaged in the financing of trade between Aleppo, Istanbul and Alexandria.[4] His father, Jacob Safra, had opened the J. E. Safra Bank in 1920. By the time he was sixteen, Edmond Safra was working at his father’s bank and was engaged in the precious metals and foreign exchange aspects of the business.

      In 1949, the family moved to Italy, where he worked for a trading company in Milan. The family moved again in 1952, this time to Brazil, where Edmond Safra and his father founded their first Brazilian financial institution in 1955.

      In 1956, Edmond Safra settled in Geneva to set up a private bank, the Trade Development Bank, which grew from an original US$1 million to US$5 billion during the 1980s. He extended his financial empire to satisfy his wealthy clients from around the world. He also founded the Republic National Bank of New York in 1966, and, later, Republic National Bank of New York (Suisse) in Geneva. Republic bank operated 80 branches in the New York area, making it the number three branch network in the metropolitan region behind Citigroup and Chase Manhattan.

      The sale of Trade Development Bank to American Express for more than US$450 million in 1983, turned into a legal battle between the two parties. The financier came out on top, winning a public apology from American Express for starting a smear campaign against him [5] and US$8 million in damages, all of which he donated to charities.

      In 1988, he also founded Safra Republic Holdings S.A., a bank holding company.[6]

      By the early 1990s, Safra’s fortune was an estimated at US$2.5 billion. He was a major philanthropist during his lifetime, and he left his wealth to the Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation which supports hundreds of projects in fifty countries around the world in the areas of education, science and medicine, religion, culture and humanitarian assistance.

      In 1996 Safra was co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management which became one of the most important investment companies in Russia and later became famous in connection with the Sergei Magnitsky affair.

      As he approached his 60s, the financier divided his time between his homes in Monaco, Geneva, and New York and the Villa Leopolda on the French Riviera. Weakened by Parkinson’s disease, he required nursing care.
      According to Russian news agency RIA Novosti, Magnitsky’s death “caused public outrage and sparked discussion of the need to improve prison healthcare and to reduce the number of inmates awaiting trial in detention prisons.”[13]

      An independent investigatory body, the Moscow Public Oversight Commission, indicated in December 2009 that “psychological and physical pressure was exerted upon” Magnitsky.[14] One of the Commissioners said that while she had first believed his death was due to medical negligence, she had developed “the frightening feeling that it was not negligence but that it was, to some extent, as terrible as it is to say, a premeditated murder.”[10]

      An official investigation was ordered in November 2009 by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.[15] Russian authorities had not concluded their own investigation as of December 2009, but 20 senior prison officials had already been fired as a result of the case.[14] In December 2009, in two separate decrees, Medvedev fired deputy head of the Federal Penitentiary Service Alexander Piskunov and signed a law forbidding the jailing of individuals who are suspected of tax crimes.[16] Magnitsky’s death is also believed to be linked to the firing of Major-General Anatoli Mikhalkin, formerly the head of the Moscow division of the tax crimes department of the Interior Ministry.[17] Mikhalkin was among those accused by Magnitsky of taking part in fraud.

      Wikinews has related news: Russian police to ‘check’ officer allegedly involved in large theft and murder
      Opalesque TV released a video on February 8, 2010, in which Hermitage Capital Management founder Bill Browder revealed details of Sergei Magnitsky’s ordeal during his eleven months in detention,[18] while the Russian Untouchables group prepared a film Russian Untouchables. Episode 1: Artem Kuznetsov about his prosecutors.[19] On 25 June 2010 radio-station Echo of Moscow announced that Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Department for Own Security started investigations against Lieutenant Colonel Artyom Kuznetsov, who has been accused of improper imprisonment of Magnitsky. The investigation was in response to appeal by the Hermitage Capital Management and United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.[20] In February 2011, the investigation, which had not yet identified any suspects, was extended to May.

    What really happened at Sandy Hook? A psychics reading. http://www.lipstickalley.com/f246/what-really-happened-sandy-hook-psychics-reading-4610...

    Dec 27, 2012 … Q-So Batwing, being a Batman fan, orchestrated both of these shootings. Is it true the “Sandy Hook” shown on the map of the third Batman …

    I have prepared a summary of her viewing — for quick reading and easy assimilation — please take note of these details, as some of this can be fact-checked:

    1) Three participants: two gunmen (late thirties, early forties) and Adam Lanza, the patsy.

    2) Adam Lanza was dazed, in a trance and may have been going to the school thinking he was just going to see his mother.

    3) The killers used pistols, she felt, hidden in their clothes, not long guns (contradicting the official story; however, there are pistol-like guns like the PLR-16 that fire a .223 round). She didn’t feel Adam had a gun.

    The two gunmen killed Adam after killing everyone else. “I feel like one of the guys walked up behind him and grabbed him, the other guy knelled down in front of him, and then just stuck the pistol kind of up under his chin and…shot him that way.” They jumped out a window. Possibly climbed up a tree, waited for crowds to gather later on, then walked among them and blended in. The gunmen “were wearing faded out jeans, a tan Carhartt jacket and their hair was kind of like greasy looking and they had a lot of stubble on their face as if they needed to shave.”

    4) An older, rich elite gentleman who loves Batman has made a deal with another man to stage this (the words “Shaman”, “Pillowcase” and “Rubio” are associated with this latter man, he is some kind of very high up person whose identity, if revealed, would “cause a war”).

    The psychic viewed the first man on a golf course and got the name “Tradewinds” on the back of the golf cart, in green, possibly with a palm tree symbol. “…[H]e looked like he was in his fifties, his hair was so grey it almost looked white and the only thing his friends kept calling him was ‘Bat Wing’. And it was an inside joke of some kind because this guy had an obsession with Batman but it was like they called him Bat Wing just as some joking nickname.”

    5) The deal involves bringing about gun control, not for reasons you might initially assume; a new gun technology has been developed that will advance guns far beyond the capabilities of what is currently available. The reading describes some of these advances, such as far less recoil and noise. “They” don’t want the public ever getting their hands on this new technology. They’re not very concerned with everyone buying up guns right now, as these guns will be akin to bows and arrows compared to what will soon be available for the military. It is about power and control.

    6) The mother was targeted for a specific reason, she was making “noise” about something, it’s not specified, but the impression is she made enemies.

    7) The Aurora and Sikh shootings are connected to this. The Tuscon shooting is not, she felt.

    Sandy Hook was planted in the new Batman film on the map.

    9) Obama knows about it (not necessarily the planned shooting, but the gun ban plan) and is going along with it and being told what to do.

    10) She discusses the Aurora shooting, says Holmes was drugged, was made to believe he did the shooting, but other people actually did it.



    I’ve provided some excerpts from the full reading below:

    FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2012

    Are these shooting massacres staged?

    Initially when I thought about it I saw three gentleman involved. And my impression was that two of them kind of knew what was going on and pre planned it and the third guy who actually was killed I felt was completely a scapegoat.


    I even had the thought that they should check the shooter’s hand for gun powder and I would have been surprised if he actually shot a gun at all. And the other two that were with him that actually did the the shootings were wearing faded out jeans, a tan Carhartt jacket and their hair was kind of like greasy looking and they had a lot of stubble on their face as if they needed to shave. And I felt like those two individuals after everything happened escaped out of the back of the school and I almost can see them going out a window, I do not think they walked out a door.


    And then completely at random I saw this older guy and he was at a golf course with his buddies, and I sensed that he was really well to do. Like a high member of society, and what was kind of comical was when they were on the golf course it felt like him and his buddies tried to outdo each other with their outlandish golf apparel, and it just felt like a good ol boys club.


    Then I kept focusing on “What is this guys name?” And he looked like he was in his fifties, his hair was so grey it almost looked white and the only thing his friends kept calling him was “Bat Wing”. And it was an inside joke of some kind because this guy had an obsession with Batman but it was like they called him Bat Wing just as some joking nickname. And I could not get any other name than that.


    There is something going on that, there is like a new technology coming out for guns and I feel like it is the material maybe that it is being made from is like superb to anything that exists now. And they only want that type of technology and quality and technology to be in the hands of certain military groups. So they are fine with citizens buying up everything that we have now to deplete inventories. Because when this new type of weaponry comes out their will be laws in force that normal citizen cannot obtain it. And the military will have the superb weapons. And I feel like it is by far, like this is going to be some really great thing and they DO NOT want citizens to have it.


    I feel like [Adam Lanza] was half out of it. Like I keep gettting the phrase in my mind “Dodo” which means to me that he was not clear headed. I do not feel like he was intoxicated, it was more like he was in some sort of a trance.


    Q-So Batwing, being a Batman fan, orchestrated both of these shootings. Is it true the “Sandy Hook” shown on the map of the third Batman movie was intentionally put their, or coincidence? And do you want to see that.

    A-No I don’t want to see, but I do feel like it WAS intentional, and I feel like they were sending a message, but no one could understand it until it was too late.

      Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (Chinese: 华为; Mandarin pronunciation: [xwǎwěɪ]) is a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.[3] It is the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, after having overtaken Ericsson.[4]

      Huawei was founded in 1988 by ex-military officer Ren Zhengfei and formed as a private company owned by its employees. Its core missions are building telecommunications networks; providing operational and consulting services and equipment to enterprises inside and outside of China; and manufacturing communications devices for the consumer market.[5] Huawei has over 140,000 employees, around 46% of whom are engaged in research and development (R&D).[6][7] It has 20 R&D institutes in countries including China, the United States,[8] Germany, Sweden, Ireland, India, Russia, and Turkey,[9][10] and in 2011 invested around US$3.74 billion in R&D.

      Ericsson (Telefonaktiebolaget L. M. Ericsson) (OMX: ERIC B, NASDAQ: ERIC), one of Sweden’s largest companies, is a provider of telecommunications equipment, data communication systems, and related services covering a range of technologies including mobile networks. In mid 2012, Ericsson was the world’s largest mobile telecommunications equipment maker with a market share of 38%.[2]

      Directly and through subsidiaries, Ericsson also has a major role in mobile devices and cable TV and IPTV systems. Ericsson was also the inventor of Bluetooth.

      Founded in 1876 as a telegraph equipment repair shop by Lars Magnus Ericsson, it was incorporated on August 18, 1918. Headquartered in Kista, Stockholm Municipality, since 2003, Ericsson is considered part of the so-called “Wireless Valley”.



      Barbara Taylor Bowman (born October 30, 1928) is an award-winning early childhood education expert/advocate, professor, and author. Her areas of expertise include early childhood care/education, educational equity for minority and low-income children, as well as intergenerational family support and roles.[1] She has served on several boards and was the co-founder of the Erikson Institute, where she pioneered the teaching of early childhood education and administration.

      Bowman was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. Her grandfather was architect Robert Robinson Taylor, and her father, Robert Rochon Taylor, was on the board of the Chicago Housing Authority. After receiving a B.A. degree from Sarah Lawrence College, she began teaching at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools’ nursery school, while simultaneously earning her M.A. degree in education from the University of Chicago in 1952.[3] She went on to teach at preschools and elementary schools.

      [edit] CareerLyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty and the 1965 creation of Head Start inspired Bowman.[4] The next year, with the support of businessman and philanthropist Irving B. Harris, Bowman cofounded the Chicago School for Early Childhood Education (now known as the Erikson Institute) with child psychologist Maria Piers and social worker Lorraine Wallach.[5] Bowman went on to serve as its president during the period of 1994 to 2001, and maintains a professorship at the institute, where she is the Irving B. Harris Professor of Child Development. The institute’s Barbara T. Bowman Professor of Child Development professorship is named in her honor.[2][6]

      Bowman is the Chicago Public Schools’ Chief Early Childhood Education Officer. She is the past president (1980–1982) of the National Association for the Education of Young Children.[3] Her Board memberships are many including: Business People in the Public Interest, Chicago Public Library Foundation, Great Books Foundation, High Scope Educational Foundation, Institute for Psychoanalysis, and National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Among the many honorary degrees awarded to Bowman are those from Bank Street College, Dominican University, Governors State University, Roosevelt University, and Wheelock College.[1]

      During her career, she has also served on the Editorial Board of Early Childhood Research Quarterly, and chaired the National Academy of Science, National Research Council’s Committee on Early Childhood Pedagogy.

      [edit] Personal lifeBowman is a quarter black from her grandfather, and was married to the late medicalist James E. Bowman, renowned pathologist and geneticist of African American descent, and the first black Resident at St. Luke’s Hospital. They have one daughter, Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Liaison in the Obama administration.[7] Their granddaughter, Laura Jarrett, graduated from Harvard Law School in 2010 and married [8] Tony Balkissoon, June 2012.

    In 1975, Aurora Mental Health Center was founded by a group of concerned Aurora residents lead by Ellin Mrachek who were determined to bring mental health services to the city. Their efforts took place in donated space.

    Since then, the Center has grown into a full-service community mental health center with more than 400 employees, 50 interns, and 80 volunteers, which the Colorado Division of Mental Health has honored several years as one of the very best. Now, services are provided by 16 specialty clinics, located in seven counseling and specialized service centers, six residential facilities, public schools, two county departments of human services, in homes and foster homes, and at other community locations.

    Ellin Smith Mrachek
    October 23, 1913 – May 24, 2001A child alone on the street playing with a stick brought Ellin Mrachek’s car to a stop in the

    late 1960’s.

    Ellin was an educator and served as vice-president and president on the Aurora Public

    Schools Board of Education for 12 years. But on that particular day, her concern was for

    a young girl who should have been in school.

    “She told me her mother had to go to the doctor ‘out there’ and she pointed,” Ellin said.

    “I investigated and found out that her mother needed mental health services.”

    The child wasn’t in school because her mother was dependent on others for transportation

    to the services available at that time – all of them located far from their home. For Ellin, that chance encounter with this young girl sparked a drive to open a community mental health

    center in Aurora.

    Ellin’s determination to gain quality education and mental health services in Aurora lead to the creation of many centers, schools, and programs, including Aurora Mental Health Center.

    In Ellin Mrachek’s legacy she has left in our community, she continues to live on with the:

    The Mrachek Middle School in Aurora, along with her husband Harry;
    The Aurora Mental Health Center’s Mrachek House, a residential facility for persons with dual disabilites; and
    The Ellin Mrachek Scholarship Fund to the Community College of Aurora.

    A new one. Alexis, voices and the Navy shipyard;

    Consider the common public characterizations of the perpetrators of the last several mass shootings in the U.S., such as John Holmes (the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting), Adam Lanza (Sandy Hook Elementary School) and most recently, Aaron Alexis, the named shooter at the Naval Sea Systems Command inside the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C. Even the most skeptical among us would have to agree that there is not only something eerily similar about the characterizations made public of each alleged perpetrator, but there is something not quite right with the changes made to the official narratives in “real time” as well as after the fact.
